You need to go to Appearance | Editor and load styles.css and then edit the link colors in the CSS file.

Thank you.
It currently looks like this, what would I change?

/*
Theme Name: Twenty Eleven Child
Description: Child theme for the Twenty Eleven theme
Author: Your name here
Template: twentyeleven
*/

@import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");

/* This will override site title color even on the dark theme */
#site-title a {
    color: #009900 !important;
}

/* This will override the changed link color */
#site-title a:focus,
#site-title a:hover,
#site-title a:active {
    color: #009900 !important;
}

I have not used it in about the past 6 years and I forget almost all of it. Thanks.

Any particular reason you're posting the same thing over and over again?

From the above, you may be using a child theme for TwentyEleven.  The line you want to change is located in the file:

http://sentimentmining.net/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/css/style.css 

and you want to change the color in this block (line 13 or so):

a {
    color: #6D6D6D;  <------ change that to the desired color
    font-family: Helvetica,Arial;
    font-size: 14px;
    outline: medium none;
}
